What's in a Name?
How what we think affects what we see, and how seeing translates into thought which affects the seeing, creating a cycle of influence.

In this workshop we hope to come to tentative conclusion on whether an artist should name a piece of work or leave it untitled, and whether titling it Untitled is in itself a form of title.

The workshop will be facilitated in English and is free entry. Limited to 12 participants.

What's in a Name?
Sunday April 15, 2018 from 5pm - 7pm.
Limited to 12 people.

Purpose of Workshop:
To come to tentative conclusion on whether an artist should name a piece of work or leave it untitled, and whether titling it Untitled is in itself a form of title.

Reason for this:
How what we think affects what we see, and how seeing translates into thought which affects the seeing, creating a cycle of influence.

Can we see without reaching a conclusion? Without naming? Without generating ideas? Just see and let it wash over you, without condemnation or judgment?

Do the titles of works of art, or the names of cars, or the labels on shoes, force us into a way of thinking that we might not go into had their not been a title to label that thing?

Speaking of paintings specifically, how does the title given to that painting affect the viewer’s way of thinking about it, talking about it?

Facilitated by Sandy Chen and Sean Irving

Sandy and Sean's exhibition Explorations/探索 is showing at the Red Room from April 5 to May 5, 2018.
